I’ve recently been reading a blog by a fellow named “Padre Steve,” which I highly recommend. To introduce him to all of you (my own readers) I thought I’d share his very interesting article about Germany (a place that often appears on my own site), where he experienced Oktoberfest. Most interesting though are Steve’s thoughts on how Oktoberfest is a community-building experience among Germans, and indeed a part of their personal and national identity. Very interesting article!
